Hi ladies! First, may I share my new purchase that I just got on salvage? It is a pre-owned MJ Karen bag from 2006 that was featured on the Purse Blog, seen here: http://www.purseblog.com/brands/marc-jacobs/marc-jacobs-karen-leather-frame-handbag/ I got it for a steal as a pre-owned salvage sample bag (from a reputable store of course - it is definitely authentic!). I just love it and it looks fabulous on. But it was a steal mostly because it needs a bit of repair. The bad news...The frame on one side was broken. Not totally broken, but the hinge had come detached from the frame inside the bag. So, the bag still looks great and holds together well, but because the hinge does not attach to the frame, the kiss lock does not close tightly. Is it possible for a great purse guy to repair a broken frame in a MJ bag? Or will I have to wear it as is or return it? I am going to take it down to the best purse and shoe guy I know of around here (San Francisco) but I was wondering if anyone had any tips or experiences with trying to get a broken frame or frame hinge of a MJ bag fixed. Thanks for any experience anyone might have! And, if I can successfully fix the bag, I will post pics!
